The Best Buy Community Grants Program
provides support to nonprofit organizations that are located within 50 miles of a Best Buy store or distribution center
. Grants averaging $3,000 to $5,000 will promote programs and services that provide opportunities for young teens in the areas of education, life skills, leadership skills, and relationship development. Special consideration will be given to programs that serve a diverse population, build skills in early adolescents (primarily ages 13-18), show positive results against a demonstrated community need, and reach at-risk children in working families. The grant application process will open on June 1 and close on July 1, 2010. Visit the Best Buy website
to review the program guidelines.
